Finishing our 2nd year of existence as a VHPA Chapter in the great state of ALASKA! By recognizing the pilots of Vietnam and expanding our chapter to other Military and Alaskan pilots and crews we will work in conjunction with Our National VHPA. We are dedicated to the objectives of the VHPA and to the fulfillment of purpose: There is Pride in knowing WE FLEW!
Our picnic this year was once again held at the Palmer American Legion . It is a very nice lake front setting and the rain held off to give us a beautiful day. About 38 folks enjoyed the food and company and the conversation was...... as you would expect ...... lively!!! A HUGH THANK YOU to David, Terry and Tim for a great job putting this together for us.
ASSOCIATION ALASKA CHAPTER
Our Veterans Museum Vietnam display is very nice, we invite all to go by and check it out! They could also use some volunteer help a couple of hours each month at the museum, so think about it! Thanks to Tim, Red and Terry for their volunteer efforts.
Membership dues for 2017 will be via a donation from our members. No set amount, what ever your feel you can give to help us stay strong. We now can accept larger donations to cover two years at a time! Keeping it simple!
